DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENTS So, you’re considering an independent school for your child. Good call. Now more than ever it’s essential that students be prepared for change, equipped for lifelong learning and eager to embrace the challenges of life. They need a sense of independence that is guided by the experience of mentors and guarded by a great institution of learning. Ask parents why they chose an independent school for their children and the list of reasons is long: great teachers, smaller classes, more personal attention, a welcoming atmosphere and the chance to explore new opportunities both in and out of the classroom. Independent schools are where many of our best academic professionals can be found, and, after all, how successful or well-prepared could any of us be without the right teachers and advisors to show us the proverbial path? These men and women are there not simply to teach the correct answers but to impart the ability to ask the right questions in the first place. Talented educators and academic professionals provide the tools we need — parents and children alike — to make the wisest choices for ourselves. To find the independent school best able to meet your needs, read on. Consider the myriad winding paths you can follow, and then take your own first step. The schools and educators within this Independent School Guide are there to light the way.

FINDING THE RIGHT SCHOOL The realization that an independent school is vital to your child’s development is an important first step — but where do parents start in finding the institution that’s right for them? There’s a huge variety of potential choices that different families will view from different perspectives, depending on circumstances and goals. That’s where this guide and the Commission on Independent Schools come in to provide a helping hand. Two helpful lists for you and your family should be created before beginning any detailed questioning: Detail the particular school features parents prefer for their children and outline your child or children’s specific needs as well as their interests. The next step is a matter of communication. Take some time to sit down and write an e-mail, compose a letter or place a phone call to any school of interest and ask for a copy of its mission statement. All schools that are affiliated with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges — and many others as well — have such statements in print, which they can supply via traditional mail or electronically. As they read each mission statement, parents should consider whether the school’s stated aspirations match theirs, and whether a particular institution has unique features that are attractive to them and applicable to their child’s needs. The detailed questions that follow should produce most or all of the remaining information parents will need. Parents can then weigh this information against the specific needs of their own child. (Source — New England Association of Schools and Colleges: neasc.org) PROGRAM OF THE SCHOOL: • Does the school’s program suit your child’s academic needs?

• Does the academic program have the breadth and depth to challenge the range of students admitted?

• How are the most able students challenged? • What is unique about the academic program? • A re there programs for exceptional children? Learning disabled children? Those with physical or emotional handicaps?

• If this is a denominational school, how is that reflected in the program? • What does the school offer in co-curricular areas such as athletics, dramatics and community activities?

• Does the overall program of the school include learning experiences of residential life (when applicable)? STUDENTS • What kind of students does the school seek, and with what results?

• Is a student profile available, including racial and ethnic characteristics, percentage of students receiving financial aid and geographical distribution (especially for residential schools)?

• If the school has a denominational affiliation, what percentage of students are from that denomination? What other denominations are represented?

• Are there examples of students participating in school-sponsored volunteer community projects?

• Where do students go following graduation or completion of the program? How does the school stay in touch with them? 4

TIPS FOR INTERVIEWS

Formal interviews are usually reserved for students entering sixth grade and up. The interview may occur during a walk around campus or in the admissions office. Parents may or may not be included. Here are some tips to help your child prepare.

Avoid “yes/no” responses

“What are you studying now?”

The interview should give the school a sense of who your child is. Help your child practice thoughtful responses that reveal something about him or her.

Give positive answers to any question about your current school, subjects or teachers. Don’t criticize or compare the two schools.

Think about what to say

Absolutely! Help your student formulate a few questions that are not obvious and reflect your child’s interests. For example, “I enjoy creative writing. Does the school have a literary magazine or a writing club?”

While your child shouldn’t try to memorize answers, you can talk through typical interview questions:

“Tell me about yourself” What makes your child special? Highlight talents, interests, experiences and goals.

“Why do you want to come to this school?” Focus on something specific about the school and connect it to your child. For example, “I’ve been playing the flute for six years, and I know your orchestra is one of the best in the state. I hope I can try out.”

“Do you have any questions for me?”

Practice Ask another adult to spend 15 minutes asking typical interview questions, and then offer constructive advice.

Don’t over-prepare You want the school to get a sense of who your child really is, not what the child has been coached to say.

HELPFUL ADVICE

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What is an independent school? Independent schools are a particular kind of nonprofit private school, distinguished by having a freestanding board of trustees that is solely responsible for the school and by being independently funded, primarily by tuition.

Are all independent schools the same? Within the Association of Independent Schools in New England membership there is an extraordinary range of schools, from small elementary schools to big boarding schools, and everything in between. While most schools are coed, a number are single-sex. Many schools have a particular religious affiliation or follow a particular educational philosophy. Some schools define themselves as traditional in their approach; others see themselves as progressive. There is much more variety within the world of independent schools than there is in public schools, because public schools must all follow the same standards and prepare for the same standardized tests.

What does parent involvement look like? You will be treated as a full partner in the education of your child. That means regular communication via different media, early notification whenever there is a concern, face-to-face meetings with teachers and administrators as needed, and an acknowledgment that you know more about your child than anyone else. Independent schools want you to be active participants in the community, to actively engage in the life of the school. Every school will have a wealth of volunteer opportunities, from chaperoning to fundraising to helping the school get greener. You will always be welcome at school. 8

INDEPENDENT SCHOOL GUIDE


Many of AISNE’s independent schools have low student-teacher ratios. This is designed because having fewer students allows the teachers to get to know each student in depth, be able to closely monitor the student’s progress, and have the time to help when a student has difficulty.

What does it mean to be accredited? An AISNE-accredited school has undergone a rigorous and thorough process that includes the creation of a self-study document that describes current practice and establishes a set of priorities for future action in all areas of the school, such as curriculum, staffing, admissions, finance, governance, health and safety. After completing the self-study, the school hosts a team of teachers and administrators from other independent schools who visit the school for three days and prepare a comprehensive report that includes both commendations and recommendations for future action. Schools are expected to address the recommendations over the next few years. There are interim reports and an interim visit scheduled during the ten-year cycle to monitor progress.

How diverse are independent schools? AISNE member schools report an average of 18 percent students of color and an average of 25 percent of students receiving financial aid. Few suburban public schools could claim to be as racially and socio-economically diverse. So the independent school down the street may well be more reflective of the diversity of the “real world” than your public school.
